Circle Card Tutorial.

Hey everyone!
My card for you today has been made using a rather sweet image from Crafty Sentiments Designs.

We have a brand new challenge starting over on the challenge blog, and the theme is Any Shape. So I thought I would revisit an old tutorial from my old blog (which is unavailable now.)

For full details on materials used for this card, please visit my blog here.

Okay, now on to the tutorial for you.
I have tried to keep it as quick and easy as possible for you.

Step 1.

Colour your image and frame it. (I have used my stitched rectangle dies from By DIEZyne. Originally purchased from Dies To Die For.)

Step 2.

Cut 3 circles.  One large in your base card. One middle sized in your layer card. And one smallest size in your design paper.
(I have used large circle dies from Spellbinders.)

Step 3.

Draw a very faint pencil line @ 4.5 inches from the left edge.

Step 4.

To the right of the line (pictured above) you need to make horizontal lines at these points, start from the bottom and work your way to the top:-

1.5 inches. Then 1/2 an inch above your 1st line.

Then 1 inch above your 2nd line.

Then 1/4 inch above your 3rd line.

Then 3/4 of an inch above your 4th line.

Step 5.

Now you need to make a cut (along the vertical line) between your 1st and last lines. (As in the picture above.)

Step 6.

Now very gently fold your circle in half.
Flatten back out and score each of your short (horizontal) lines.

Step 7.

Now, carefully fold your score lines in mountain and valley folds as shown above.
Your 1st line is a mountain, your 2nd a valley and so on and so forth.

Step 8.

Now fold your card in half. See those excess bits? We’re going to cut them off.

Like So.

So now we are left with two perfect edges. (Honestly they are. The steps have made mine look shorter. Grins.)
And now it is time to decorate! Yay!
